Call of Duty: Black Ops III release date, details and beta leaked. Four-player co-op campaign, zombies and more

According to a GameStop promotional display obtained by Kotaku, Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be released on November 6 and, as we can see on the promo, pre-orders will include access to the beta across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The poster lacks mention of a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 launch or beta, so we will have to wait until its official announcement tomorrow Sunday to see if Black Ops 3 is exclusive to next-gen systems and PC.


Furthermore, a recently leaked pamplhet has revealed many info about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, outing a four-player co-op campaign, Zombies XP progression system, a new momentum-based chained-movement system (allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse), and more:

All-New Narrative

No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies offering – a full-game experience with its own distinct storyline right out of the box.

XP Progression System

Black Ops III Zombies is the most immersive and ambitious Call of Duty Zombies to date, with a full XP-based progression system for players that adds depth and re-playability to the engaging gameplay Zombies fans have come to expect.

New Movement System

With Black Ops III, Treyarch premieres a new momentum-based chained-movement system, allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse, using controlled thrust jumps, slides, and mantling abilities in a multitude of combinations, all while maintaining complete control over your weapon at all times.

Tailored Map Design

Maps are designed from the ground-up for the new movement system, allowing players to be successful with traditional movement, as well as advanced tactics and maneuvers.

Specialist Characters

Black Ops III multiplayer also introduces the new Specialist character system, which allows players to rank up and master each specific character’s battle-hardened capabilities and weapons. With this addition to Traditional and Weapons XP progression systems, Black Ops III multiplayer gives players three different ways to rank up.

Co-Op Campaign

Treyarch elevates the Call of Duty social gaming experience by delivering a campaign with the ability to play cooperatively with up to four players online, using the same battle-tested network infrastructure and social systems that support its world-class Multiplayer and Zombies game modes.

Cinematic Arena-Style Play

Designed for co-op and replayability, players encounter all the epic cinematic gameplay moments Call of Duty is known for delivering as well as new open-area arena-style gameplay elements designed to allow players to approach the game with a different strategy each time they play.

Character Progression

And now, every player is completely customizable: from weapons to loadouts, to abilities and outfits, all with full progression systems and a personalized armory to show off accomplishments, providing a constantly-evolving campaign experience.




Remember, an official announcement is planned for Sunday, April 26.
